Fashion products retailer Wolverine World Wide Inc is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael A. Volkema to the Company's Board of Directors, with a term to begin on December 1, 2005.

Volkema, age 49, is the Chairman of Herman Miller Inc, a leading designer and manufacturer of furnishings for the office and home. Volkema has held senior management positions with Herman Miller since 1990 when the company acquired Meridian Inc, where he was President and Chief Operating Officer. Volkema became President and Chief Executive Officer of Herman Miller in 1995. He has been Chairman since 2000.
Volkema is a proven leader who has been named to the Forbes CEO 800 list as well as the Harvard Business School's list of the 20th Century Great American Business Leaders.

Herman Miller has been consistently recognized by Fortune magazine as the nation's most admired office furniture company and is an acknowledged leader in product innovation, sustainable manufacturing processes and outstanding workplace practices. Forbes magazine recognized Herman Miller in 1999 and 2000 on its platinum list of America's Best Managed Large Corporations, and Business Ethics magazine has named the company among the 100 Best Corporate Citizens in America for the past 6 years.

"In addition to Michael's wealth of experience in business, his focus in the areas of corporate culture, design innovation and environmental responsibility will bring added strength to the Wolverine Board," stated Timothy J. O'Donovan, Wolverine's Chairman and CEO. "His distinguished track record of building business success with break-through products and strong customer relationships will prove to be valuable assets as the Company pursues its vision of becoming the world's premier footwear company in the markets they serve."
